My NFT was temporarily blocked from public access for no reason. I emailed support 1 week ago and still no response. It wasn’t nude, pornographic, or violent. Just two presidents are standing in the photo, just that. Can you unblock my item, please? or simply say why you banned my NFT?
First of all, I added the photo to the topic to be more clear.
Secondly, one is Erdogan (Turkey) other one is Merkel (Germany) as you can see in the topic right now.
Thirdly, no I didn’t take this photo but it should be taken by me? Also, it has no owner (anonymous photo on the internet).
Everyone is creating tons of NFT with images freely on the internet and no one has any problem if there is no real owner of it. In fact, there are many NFTs that are approved and receive a high number of likes, even though they aren’t the real owners and did not take the photo or video themselves.
Is this nft owner nusret or did this nft owner shoot this video?
and finally, If there are such strict precautions and rules, why doesn’t rarible follow the review and approval steps before we pay the fees? Let’s say they make this observation and approve it. Then why is my nft actively for sale (eligible) for months (2-3 months I guess) then removed? If it is removed, what is the reason for it? All aside, what about my deposit, gas fees?
This is not normal. It feels like, they approve nfts like there is no rule, after a while, they accidentally sees it and say it’s against the rules and removes it even without any explanation-reason.
yo, dude, check yourself - I am a user just like you and was trying to offer an explanation so that you could fix your problem
so I’m gonna answer ‘points’ and then I’m gonna move on with my life and you can call support
you did this after my post - your photo addition is an edit
Merkel isn’t a president, she’s the German Chancellor; the president is Frank-Walter Steinmeier so without the addition of your edited post to include the image in question, you failed to give information to us to help you
fuck yes it should if you don’t want to get taken down for IP theft
just because it’s on the internet doesn’t mean it has no owner - all you’ve shown here is you’re able and willing to take an image and turn it into a product for you to sell as your own even though you don’t own it; do you hold a license giving you permission to use it? No? Then it’s theft
yeah, and? You think it’s OK because “everyone else is doing it then why not me?”
don’t know, you’d need to ask them yourself
No, the problem is you stole someone else’s work, claimed it as your own, ultimately you got found out and taken down, and now you’re bitching about it
If you don’t want to get taken down then do your own work, this isn’t the wild-west of NFTs
Your original post said:
I offered a possible scenario based on the limited info you gave - ultimately, it might have been taken down for another reason, I don’t know; but don’t get your bitch up at me 'cause you might not have liked the reason; do your own work and be civil to other users
oh, PS - here is the credit for the person who did actually take the photo and a link to the original photo (all of which took me about thirty seconds to discover …)

You totally misunderstood me I guess My problem is not with you. I wanted to make my voice heard from here because Rarible support simply doesn’t reply emails (or reply after months). Besides, it is not fair that some NFTs are randomly taken down and there is no system that meticulously scans all nfts. If there are nfts that continue to get likes actively and some of them taken down because of IP theft or whatever it is, it seems like there is a big problem with rules or system. This is all I wanted to say. Simple.
No, you can’t pick up a random photo and mint it : it’s copyright infringement and illegal in most countries on Earth.
No, we won’t give you any source or owner : it’s your job to do a reverse image search and it takes approximately 30 seconds. My hint, an image doesn’t self-generates : it has a proper owner/author.
Unless your NFT was reported, Rarible doesn’t monitor copycats : it’s your responsibility. You paid to mint something that wasn’t yours, it’s too bad for you lost money, but it’s also your “punishment” for your poor choice.
This topic has nothing more to bring, so it’s closed.
